If you're a cinefile that finds the prospect of fighting crowds at East Hampton's movie theatre this summer as appealing as The Phantom Menace (3D or not), you might want to check out "Goose Creek" in Wainscott. Situated on 5.5 acres on (an inlet off of) Georgica Pond, the home boasts "a 110 seat movie theatre that is an exact replica of the Zeigfeld Theatre." The 25,000 sq. ft. home offers a few other amenities?limestone floors, an indoor heated wave pool, Turkish bath, massage rooms, outdoor pool, and a tennis court?but it's the screening room that's "made it a Mecca for Hollywood and New York society's A-list."
Whoever does end up renting the property will join a rather
impressive lengthy roster of boldface names: Damon Dash, Jay-Z, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Warren Beatty, Kevin Costner, Geena Davis (she got married here), and Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley (who rented out the movie theater for their daughter's birthday). We're not exactly sure if this is a selling point, though.
